Oklahoma oil blast site may not have had proper safety signs

Posted on Thursday, April 29th, 2010 at 2:15 pm    

An explosion at a rural Oklahoma oil and gas production site that killed one person and injured another on April 14th may have been the result of improper warnings and safety features at the site. The blast occurred on April 14th and may have been caused by a cigarette lighter.  Officials found that the site was not properly secured, and did not have a fence to keep people away from the machinery. In addition, regulators did not see evidence of warning signs anywhere near the blast site.
